Calming Down

I know that all of you out there who have been hoping for pictures of Kayin are wondering why I am not posting about her...something very scary happened in our household tonight. We are actually still trying to calm down from it all.

To put things in a nutshell and not go into too much detail. Our neighbor (who, we found out later was on something) continued to bang on our front door throughout the early evening. Well, we were downstairs and yet another bang on the door. Justin went upstairs and told him he would talk with him outside (not locking the door behind him). This man proceeded to barge in our house and open the door!!! I was coming up the stairs with Kayin and this was the breaking point. I was now scared and wasn't sure what to do other than try and keep Kayin, Harper and Justin calm. We called our other neighbor and he made a report to the "non-emergency" number. As Justin was on the phone with the "non-emergency" hotline, the man was at our door again screaming, "Let me in, let me in! I'm scared!" Justin, my knight in shining armour looked through our glass on the storm door and said, "Man, I'm not letting you in! I'm scared!!" Within minutes, the LPD was at our door.

Well, in the long run, after about 2 minutes of banging on his door by the Lincoln Police Department, he opened his door as calm as could be, then BOLTED down the street. As one of the officers put it as he was writing up the report, he will be locked up for quite some time!!

I guess he has quite the history and we now know that if it happens again, to call 911 IMMEDIATELY!!!

That guy creeped me out the day he came into the garage! What a freak!

Oh. My. Goodness. I can't even believe this! It's like something that happens on a bad TV show. I'm so sorry you guys had to deal with that. What a scary experience!

Maggie -- I know. I just hope he gets the help he needs. Thank God Justin was home!!

Meghan -- It was kind of funny though...we were talking to the cops outside of our other neighbor's house as two cops ran after him on foot. They both looked at each other and said "We're not chasing him...we're getting into the squad car and going after him." You know, on COPS, they usually chase and hunt the guy down!!
